Just an ordinary day

7 o'clock in the morning

My day starts with Cade in bed next to me, Lady Bird is at the foot of the bed and Lucy is somewhere under the covers.

8 o'clock
We have had our breakfast and now we're dressed and "combing" our hair with a plastic comb that goes with Daddy's shaving kit.  He even wet it.

9 o'clock
We dropped off some items to donate to our friend's garage sale/adoption fundraiser and then headed to Target.

While we were at Target looking for a birthday present we found these.  I'm kind of curious as to why the Abuelito is .20cents more.  hmmm?

10 o'clock
We're home and Cade is playing a game while I tackle the laundry.

In the last two weeks he has become quite computer savvy- both hands on deck. 

11 o'clock
Time for a snack.

12 o'clock noon

 We took a trip to Nana's house for lunch.  I went to Hobby Lobby.  Sadly I don't have pictures of this because upon entering Hobby Lobby all rational thought and control left me.  I was sucked in to the Holiday-mess.  Luckily I made it out alive and was able to pick up my little guy just before 2. 

My Hobby Lobby Purchase:  98 clear plastic Christmas Ornaments.  Sorry folks.  If you snooze you loose! Right Suz?!
(98 ornaments for the Junior League's Cookies and Cocoa with The Clauses)

2 o'clock
My happy camper! We're heading home to wrap our gift we bought earlier today.

3 o'clock 
We're heading to the party at Safari Stop in The Woodlands 

4 o'clock

Cade is chasing Angie through the tube You can see see Angie's tutu and Cade's head just on the outside of the rope passage way.

5 o'clock
Happy Birthday Michaela. 
Nice Smile you guys.  haha.

6 o'clock

Dinner at WhichWich.

No picture here.

BUT I do have this one taken during the 6 o'clock hour when we got home.

This was taken after I cleaned up the bulk of it. Hmmm. Which dog do you think did this to my pillow?

At least Cade helped in his own special way by offering to dust bust the back patio.... so helpful isn't he?

                                                     Then he decided he'd rather try his Fun Dip party favor.
7 o'clock
After bath time and PJs I asked him if he was ready for "book time" and he said "how about play time"

So we played.  We used our packaging from (can't remember ) and have used it as a castle, a burning building, and a parking lot.  See boxes are WAY more fun then the thing that came in it....

Barbie from Toy Story 3 was the rooftop firefighter- she even went "in" the burning building. 

8 o'clock
We read two books, said our prayers and talked for a minute about Papa (Cade is really curious about him- Today when were driving home from my parent's house he said, "I can't see Papa's feet in Heaven. I just see clouds."

8:12 p.m. It's bedtime for him and Mama Time for me.

9:45 p.m.  "Our Ordinary Day" has come to an end.

thanks for the inspiration

The Gift of an Ordinary Day

I'm going to do this tomorrow!

My "ordinary day" isn't anything spectacular but I can guarantee that the moments I create, I want Cade to remember...I want to remember. So I'm going to do this.  I got the idea from

This is what I love about blogging.  There are so many great memories here... I look back to the first post where I included "Travis" or that during the "GAP" of no posts is when we were married, pregnant and became parents.  Or Cade's first day of school or trip to the zoo... it's all here.  I've never done a sun up to sun down post... so I'm going to do my best to capture the moments of our ordinary day.


I've been meaning to post this for a few weeks now....

The day before my Papa's birthday I told Cade, "tomorrow is a special day.  It's Papa's birthday." He said, "can we go?"  I said, that we couldn't.  Heaven is just too far away to go.  So I said we'd send  him some balloons and he'd know they were for him.

So on August 28th, Cade and I released two balloons to heaven.  We wrote a message to Papa and sent them up.  If you look real close you'll see two blue dots on your screen.  Those are them.
